Beautifully maintained, and never chartered, Hyperlas is a lovely example of the Hylas 54, designed for blue water sailing in comfort and safety while still giving you goose bumps from the sheer exhilaration of sailing a masterpiece.
Comfort comes in the huge aft master cabin with the centre-line king sized bed. She boasts a light and spacious salon which invites you to sit down, relax and soak in the quality of the surrounding workmanship. You also must see her galley with space to be creative. Finally, two sleeping cabins forward giving guests space and privacy.
Safety comes with the strength of build which incorporates Twaron, a carbon fibre, which is layered into the solid fibreglass hull, watertight crash bulkheads fore and aft, wide side decks with solid hand holds for safety going forward and standing rigging as fat as your finger!
Joy of sailing comes from a German Frers designed hull, a mast reaching 73 feet above the water which enables roughly 1800 sq foot of sail to be flown which is easily handled using powered winches, no need to leave the safety of the well designed cockpit while on passage. Solid, safe and forgiving is not uncommon in offshore designs, but combine that with the feeling of elation you will get when under sail and you begin to realize why this 54 is so special.
Down below is light and spacious with enough sleeping accommodation for a soccer team (five doubles and a single) if needed. The quality of the joinery is notable, but many owners say it is the little things that make them really appreciate the thought and understanding that German Frers and the builders at the Queen Long yard poured into this yacht. Things such as the ball bearing runners that make the drawers move so smoothly, the deep twin sinks located near the centreline so they drain on either tack, access to filters, pumps and so on.
Hyperlas is finally up for sale by the original owners who have proudly cruised her from California to Alaska over thirteen wonderful years.
Now it is your turn. Enjoy!
